SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a network protocol used to securely transfer and manage files on remote systems. SFTP is layered on top of the SSH protocol, and is preferred over FTP as a method of remote file transfer.

Connecting to an SFTP Server

Under Under Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu Linux, and Mac OS X, the following command from a terminal will connect a client computer to the UMIACS OpenLAB.

wing:~ bkirz$ sftp bkirz@openlab.umiacs.umd.edu

For UMIACS supported Windows hosts, a SFTP client is already installed. For other hosts, you can download and install PuTTY, which will enable SSH and SFTP access.

Alternatively, users can use the UMIACS Intranet SFTP Web Applet located here without installing any additional software.
